After the storm

After the Storm is John Rousmaniere's most ambitious work ever, the unique expression of storyteller & authority on seamanship who has survived storms at sea. Each of the book's stories of seafaring disaster many little known, all exciting & of deep human interest presents a broad human drama. Rousmaniere tells of the hopes & choices that put these sailors in harm's way. He takes readers into the gales themselves with authoritative knowledge of horrific weather & the split-second decisions that seamen must make. Finally, he explores the consequences of these disasters for survivors, rescuers and families. The pursuit of these elusive strands leads the reader deep into our ambivalent relationship with the sea as both "destroyer & preserver."
